WE WONâT COME HOME âTIL MORNING - Thatâs the tack they take when they get into their music, and youâre bound to be listening âtil morning, yourself. Theyâve been going at it for over twenty years, now, so the guarantee has sure held its own. From their home base in Pittsburgh, theyâve played in Americaâs major cities â festivals, concerts and pubs in Cleveland, Detroit, New Orleans, Miami, Boston and others. And two tours in Ireland, most recently at the Clifden Arts Festival, sharing the stage with John Sheehan of the Dubliners. Theyâve opened for Paddy Reilly, Patrick Street and The Irish Rovers. Bruce Foley, Paddy Folan and Jimmy Lamb combine button accordion, guitars, uilleann pipes, whistles and voices true to the tradition. Yes, harmonies so tight you canât slip a sigh between them and an easy charm that embraces a small session or a festival stage; these lads have it. Guaranteed.

1. CLARE TO HERE (Ralph McTell) I first heard this in Boston years ago. Anyone who has worked away from home can identify with the lyrics. I cranked up the speed a bit to reflect the urban grittiness and feelings of bitter loneliness. Most folks have responded very well to this version. Dave Hanner adds some real magic with his electric guitar. [Bruce]
2. COME BACK PADDY REILLY (Percy French) This was a favorite song of my uncle and godfather, J. Frank Gannon. He urged me to learn the song from the time I started playing guitar. In the 1950s he and his friends shared a summer place that had a phonograph. An old recording of this Percy French classic was the top-playing record on that machine. Iâll always associate this song with Uncle Frank who passed away in March, 2005. May he rest in peace. [Jimmy]
3. GOLD & SILVER DAYS (Phil Coulter) Our version is from Paddy Reillyâs double CD of the same name. A memorable song that tells a good story about growing up in Derry. I believe the Daisy Field was a well known dance hall that often hosted Johnny Quigley and his show band. [Bruce]
4. HOMES OF DONEGAL (Sean MacBride) Iâve heard this song for years and thought it to be a nice simple waltz with catchy verses about a nice simple place. Then about ten years ago I heard a version of this song from Paul Brady, the well known Irish singer/songwriter. His arrangement with a full symphony, extra measures between lyrics, and the power of his voice put a whole new stamp on that song. We still play it as a waltz, but the arrangement has many of the markings of Paul Brady. [Jimmy]
5. WHEN THE BOYS COME ROLLING HOME (Tommy Sands) I learned this while touring with Tommy Sands. It tells a familiar story of emigrants who have been meaning to return home year after year but never seem to make it. (Follow the Links down on the left and hear Tommy's comments on this song and our CD) [Bruce]
6. BANKS OF THE OLD PONTCHARTRAIN (Hank Williams) I first heard this in Cleggan, Co. Galway, where locals were singing a version from Sharon Shannonâs album 'The Diamond Mountain Sessions'. I have learned a number of American songs in Ireland and this one is a favorite. It really shows the similarity between old-time country and Irish ballads. [Bruce]
7. POLKAS: WE WONâT COME HOME 'TIL MORNING / MAGGIE IN THE WOODS / RYANâS (Traditional) We get the CDâs name from the first tune. Emma learned it at Scoil Acla, the trad school on Achill Island, Co Mayo. Dekeâs deadly percussion really drives these tunes and we have a blast whenever we play the set in public. [Bruce]
8. PARADISE (John Prine) Iâve been a John Prine fan since the early 80âs. His lyrics are funny or provocative. Usually both. He has a great following in Ireland where I learned this song from a cousin there. Itâs about a beautiful piece of land in Kentucky that was ruined by a strip mining operation many years ago. [Jimmy]
9. ROSE OF ALLANDALE (Traditional) I heard a number of versions of this and always found it to be a great waltz thatâs sure to fill the dance floor. I've discovered that it was written in London in the year 1835 by the team Jefferys/Nelson and was an extremely popular song in it's time. [Bruce]
10. SWEET SIXTEEN (Jimmy Thornton) Legend has it that Jimmy Thornton wrote this as a present for his wife on their golden wedding anniversary. Itâs a beautiful love ballad that tells of timeless affection. [Bruce]
11. THE CURLEW (Traditional) Dermot OâBrien, the late great accordion player, recorded this song many years ago. Itâs an easy melody to sing with a range that stays within one octave. [Jimmy]
12. JIGS: NA CEANNABHÁIN BHÁNA / SADDLE THE PONY (Traditional) The slip jig is one of the first tunes that Emma learned at Scoil Acla and then taught to me. Saddle the Pony is a favorite jig for step-dancers. [Bruce]
13. STEAL AWAY (Phil Coulter) This Phil Coulter song is one of my favorites. The lyrics, the melody, and the tempo seem to put listeners at ease from the start. And the message is hopeful. Better days are coming as long as weâre together. [Jimmy]
14. SPEED OF THE SOUND OF LONELINESS (John Prine) I first heard and learned this song in Cleggan, Co. Galway. Iâve always liked the chorus and the concept of someone breaking the loneliness barrier. Prineâs efforts as a word-smith always get you thinking. [Bruce]
15. THE BOYS OF BARR NA SRÁIDE (Sigerson Clifford) Whenever I am asked to perform âmy favorite songâ then this priceless gem from Co. Kerry comes out. If all you are looking for is beautiful poetry, wedded to a haunting melody, then go no further. It is a poignant recollection of a manâs life and his close friends that focuses on St. Stephenâs Day and the traditional hunting of the wren. [Bruce]
16. DONEGAL DANNY (Phil Coulter) Both Jimmy and I knew about this song for years but a recent CD that Paddy got from the Irish Independent last year had a nice version from Ronnie Drew of the Dubliners and that renewed our interest. Fishermen do have the most dangerous job of all. This goes out to all the fishermen I know in New Bedford, MA and in Co. Galway. [Bruce]
17. REELS: SALLY GARDENS / KERRY REEL / MISS MCLEODâS (Traditional) Paddy and I have often played the first tune for dancers. I love having Emma play the Kerry Reel with me. And what better way to finish than Miss McLeodâs? [Bruce]
